I believe that it would be better for you to ask this question in the UK Wolf Conservation thread, as this thread/section is for asking questions or providing answers about wolves in general, not the UK conservation ^^

I saw the section about wolves predators, but can you make a distinction between adult wolf predators and wolf pup predators? I am writing a story, and this is important. Thanks.

Pretty much any sort of predatory animal will prey on wolf pups when they're a small size. The bigger the pups get, though, the fewer predators will prey on them.

Can you tell me some specific predators for adult wolves?

Well, wolves are apex predators, so there's really no animal that regularly relies on wolves for food.

However, it's not unheard of for animals such as bears and mountain lions to kill and eat wolves.

Really nice! that's alot of information about wolves.
This morning and last night, in my wolf calender,i found a little information about wolves and i thought posting because i thought it would be pretty interesting.


Wolves are one of the few mammals that mate for life.After much nuzzling,pawing and grooming,the bond between a wolf couple is secure and the final stages of courtship begin.

A wolf typically laps up one to three quarts of water per day,depending on its size,the moisture content of the prey it has eaten and the climate.

Spring is birthing and denning season for wolves,a time the entire pack devotes to nurturing and nourishing its newborn pups.

It may look like a dog,but a wolf's larger brain,more powerful bite,scent-marking and preference for howling over barking are a few that distinguish it from a domesticated dog.

The social bonds formed by playing,eating and sleeping together as pups remain strong and help keep wolf packs functioning as tight,cohesive family units.

Nearly full grown,at six to eight months a young wolf is strong enough to accompany the pack on hunts.Defenders works closely with ranchers to keep livestock safe from wolves.

Gray wolves are not nessarily gray---coats of solid black,pure white,tawny tan,rich brown and a variety of shades and combinations are also common.

Snowshoelike feet--large and slightly webbed--give wolves a big advantage over their prey in snow.Unfortunately,wolves traveling snowy expanses in Alaska are east targets for aerial gunners.

An Artic wolf's smaller ears,shorter legs and muzzle,stocky body,extra-thick foot pads,dense overcoat and winter undercoat help it stay warm in extremely frigid conditions.

Glad to see that you find this interesting ^^ However, be sure to post more than three words, as less can be considered as SPAM, ok? Thank you very much!
